What Are DOT Physicals?

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers to undergo physical examinations to ensure that they’re physically, mentally, and emotionally fit enough to maintain a commercial driver’s license (CDL). During a DOT physical, a certified medical examiner (CME) reviews the patient’s medical history, checks their vitals, and evaluates their:

  • Eyes
  • Ears
  • Mouth
  • Throat
  • Heart
  • Lungs
  • Spine
  • Nervous system
  • Extremities
  • General appearance
